I’m on a Macbook Pro with a retina display. The ActiveState TK implementation does not seem to take the high dpi of the display into account. It doesn’t matter what I put the “tk scaling”. It makes no difference.
I’m under the impression that if I set “tk scaling” to 2.0, then set my root window height to 1080 it should take up 2160 dots on the screen. But that’s not what happens. No matter what the scaling is, 1080 remains 1080 at 72dpi which means it runs off the screen (which has an actual resolution of 2880x1800).
I have an image (144dpi) 250x1080 that I’m trying to display in a label and no matter what I try, it always runs off the screen. Am I missing something here? How do I get tk to take into account a 144dpi display?
